Proceeds fund Cloud Storage.
Inspired by conspiracy theories and government secrets, Cloud Storage places a fluffy cumulus cloud as the main character at the center of an inept plot of surveillance, cover-up, and violence. An installation consisting of kinetic paintings, optical sculptures, and on-site construction, it will create an immersive, engaging environment ideally viewed by groups of visitors. The installation encourages and incentivizes visitors to work together to fully explore the enigmas within. Designed to help visitors question the sources of their news and information, the work uses parody to educate audiences about rampant conspiracies that thrive online in isolated internet communities. A unique approach to installation, Cloud Storage offers a reevaluation of engagement that decenters interactivity and focuses on optical phenomena that can only be experienced first-hand. A cloud is the protagonist and star of the exhibition as a stand-in for UAP, unidentified aerial phenomena, the preferred nomenclature that has replaced UFO. The cloud is the subject of scrutiny in a world where conspiracy theories abound, and we are made ever more aware of the gaps in our understanding.
